Academy of Music Thursday 3/23/72
I was fortunate enough to have a great seat in the balcony for this show. Just a taste of what was to come in Europe the following 2 months. Saw them again when they returned at Roosevelt Stadium, NJ. Great memories.

Get out when they blow!
This is a very tight 2nd set with great sound.
I kinda like hearing Bobby and Pig during N.F.A it has just a little more BALLS then when Bob and Donna do it later on down the road.
P.S-The Dark Star is epic and sublime.

Will we ever see more of this?
Ya the Pig and Bob screaming at the end of NFA is a complete joke but it's worth it. One of the hottest renditions ever. Phil is on fire. I would love to hear the "China/Rider" and "Playin" from this show, a damn shame they're not available. The unhinged, balls to the walls playing here is more reminiscent of a '70-'71 show than the polished act that would soon go to Europe. Oh yea, then there's the Dark Star...! Some of the hottest playing ever.

The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" March 23, 1972 at the Academy of Music, NYC, NY, U.S.A.
37 Years ago to the day, the GRATEFUL DEAD were in NYC at the Academy of Music, aka the 14th Street Theater.
I highly recommend adding this show to your 1972 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.
One of the best versions of "Two Souls In Communion".
In the 40's the Academy of Music was called The Paramount Theater and all the big bands played there, as well as the vaudeville acts, radio personalities, singers, comdeians and other live acts. Matinee shows and evening shows were common on a daily basis.
The theater had more character than Edward G. Robinson in "Key Largo."
It's a Betty Board...5 stars.
Get the 21st, 23rd, & 25th of March at the Academy of Music. There is also the 27th but it's an audience recording and it's real rough to listen to.
It would be nice to have the first set of this show...
Get em' while ya can, get em' while they're free, get em' now or you'll be sorry...
Eat Drink, Be Merry and listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.
Thanks for the Love from one of the most magical theaters in Manhattan.
PS: March 25, 1972 was a Hell's Angels Benefit, it's been released as Dick's Picks Vol. 30. Bo Diddley opened the show, and I was there.
I bought Dick's Picks Vol. 30, I recommend you do to.
